Terrible city planning if you ask me (oh wait, we aren't in a "city" since it's not part of the Sacramento city limits- A-A is unincorporated Sacramento County- county bumpkins in the middle of a metro area- go figure ) Arden-Arcade was I'm sure once the "happening" suburb of Sacramento, say in the 1960s and 70s.
There's some debate over how many neighborhoods make up the Arden Arcade area. Some say 29, although an online neighborhood map shows 33. Donald Stitt, area resident and Coldwell Banker broker-Realtor, has a Sacramento County map that outlines 36 neighborhoods in Arden Arcade, including one with his favorite name, Dunmovin.
Howe Park is a nice park overall. The grounds are very well maintained and it is really clean. The bathrooms aren't, but what park has a clean bathroom? I've been coming to Howe Park since I was a little girl when we would come visit family in Sac , way before I moved up here. We bring our kids here to play every so often since we live close by.
The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail (or American River Bike Trail) is a paved multi-use pathway that runs between the confluence of the Sacramento River with the American River, just north of downtown Sacramento, CA, and Beal's Point at Folsom Lake, north of Folsom, CA.
